Tip of the week: listen and sing-a-long

Vocabulary needs to be revised, What could be better than studying vocabulary by singing your favourite songs?
Read the lyrics and enjoy the song. You don’t have to translate the lyrics word by word, just try to find out what the song is all about. 
Pick some words or phrases from the song that you would like to learn. If necessary, look up their exact meaning in a dictionary. 
Now,  all you have to do is listening to the song again and again (no problem - it’s one of your favourite songs!).
Let the music turn you on.
Use your search engine (google, safari, firefox,etc.) Put the name of your favorite song + lyrics into search. Go!

Would you do it?

You’re standing in the open door of an airplane. The wind is blowing hard and your legs are shaking. The ground looks so far away. Everything is tiny… houses, cars, lakes and rivers. You know it will all be over in minutes, but it seems like so many things could go wrong. Do you jump?

People sometimes feel that unless they want to die with regrets, they need to take risks and try activities that seem dangerous. For example, they might jump from an airplane, swim with sharks, or climb a tall mountain. But you don’t have to leave your comfort zone to be happy with your life. What’s important to one person is not necessarily important to another!
